HPR4142: A Shared Shell History With Atuin

Hosted by mnw on 2024-06-18 00:00:00
Download or Listen

In this episode Marcus / mnw walks you through the install and initial configuration of a shell history replacement called Atuin.

My first show I'm quite nervous!

Config Options

These are the settings suggested to change in the config file ~/.config/atuin/config.toml

auto_sync = true

style = "compact"

inline_height = 10

enter_accept = false

Trouble Shooting

Is my postgresql working ?

psql -d "postgres://atuin:ak4hTNms5Y@" -c "select now()"

Is my service running?

service atuin status


On the first host you register on you want to grab your key.

atuin key

Then login and use that key on the other clients with

atuin login -u username -k "the word soup from the atuin key command"

You described the installation process and gave suggestions for settings in Atuin very well!

I am not familiar with this sw and for the moment I think I will not benefit of it. But now I know it exist, and I can go back to this episode whenever I get curious to try it.

Thanks for your good presentation of Atuin!
